Our Story

Custom Shop Guitars Handcrafted
Paoletti Guitars® was established in 2005 as the natural evolution of Mr.Paoletti's guitar luthier and amplifier tech activities.

Like many of the best creations, Paoletti Guitars grew out of a strong understanding of the past and an artist’s active imagination for the future. Based in Tuscany, Italy, where from the end of the 20th century the Paoletti family once produced Chianti red wine, much of that thirst has been past down to Fabrizio Paoletti.

In the spirit of paying reverence to the past and at the same time making the best use of the materials at hand, Paoletti began to make use of the ancient wine barrels left from the old family business. With many of these being made of centenarian chestnut wood, it was soon realised that this gave the instruments a unique and impressive sound.

This is the story behind my instruments. Visually the instruments are a mixture of the old and the new, with the Loft series replicating the chipped paint jobs of well-worn rock’n’roll guitars
It is a great emotion to give a new life to this ancient Chestnut, is like painting a forever memory of it, in a guitar that is ready to bring you years of high quality playing. Turning old wood that served people's wine for decades, into guitars.
